Techie Youth - Niche Informational Websites

Today at Techie Youth I have learned about niche sites. This unit is about how you can monetize niche websites and how to build them. For a niche site, it is very important to narrow down your search, in other words to not have such a broad topic. For example, if your site is about knives, what kind of knives is your site about? In addition, it is recommend to have at least 30 written articles in your site. A very useful tool that I learned today was Google Trends. Google Trends let me see and search for topics that are trending or were, in other words how many people are searching for something, vegan food, organic cloth... Google Trends is a great tool that can help you create a niche site because you can see what are people more interested about.
